Poddomkrachivaniye and towage


Do not get a jack under car thresholds, the pallet of a case, panels of a floor or directly under components of the steering drive or a suspension bracket at all!

Do not perform any repair work under the car enshrined in the lifted provision by means of only one jack! Surely use reliable props!

For a poddomkrachivaniye it is necessary to park the car on a plain horizontal surface, whenever possible with a hard coating. In the presence of the slightest bias it is necessary to take care of precautionary measures against kickback: prop up the wheel located on diagonal from a subject to removal by antiretractable boots), firmly cock the parking brake, turn on the reverse gear (RKPP), or transfer the selector lever to situation "P" (AT). Try not to depart far from the poddomkrachenny car, especially if nearby there are children.

When performing change of wheels before poddomkrachivat the car, take off a decorative cap and a balloon key weaken nuts of fastening of the wheel which is subject to replacement. Prepare the spare wheel.

At a car poddomkrachivaniye for the purpose of its fixing in the lifted situation when performing more serious, than replacing a wheel, repair work the head of a hydraulic jack should be got under a forward stretcher or a case of differential of a back axis. For the purpose of distribution of loading between a head of a jack and a surface of a domkratny point it makes sense to lay the wooden block. Props are got under regular forward and back side domkratny points.


Strictly speaking, the emergency vehicle equipped with the four-wheel drive (AWD) the automatic transmission (AT) and VTD should be towed with a full separation of wheels from the earth on a tow truck platform.

 Towage of all-wheel drive (AWD) models with a separation from the earth only of forward or back wheels can lead to the fact that the car owing to rotation of interaxal differential will make an involuntary turn, besides, at such towage load of differential considerably raises that is fraught with premature wear of internal components of the last!

As it was already told above, it is the best of all to carry out transportation of the failed 4WD-car with a full separation of wheels from the earth. At installation of the car on a platform of the tow truck it is necessary to include the first transfer (models with RKPP) / or to transfer the selector lever to situation "P" (models from AT), to cock the parking brake and it is reliable to fix safety chains. You watch that chains were not tense too strongly as it will lead to excessive compression of elements of a suspension bracket and it is fraught with destruction of the last when jolting during the movement. Schemes of breaking-out of the car on a platform and the admissible angles of extension of safety chains are submitted on illustrations.

 Transportation of the car with the failed transmission has to be made only with a full separation of wheels from the earth on a tow truck platform!

It is in urgent cases allowed to make towage of the emergency vehicle without separation from the earth of all four wheels.

 Make sure that the towing car is heavier towed.

Use at towage the towing sling which is only specially intended for this purpose which can be got cheap practically in any shop of automobile accessories. The sling has to cling only to the eyes which are specially intended for this purpose which should not be confused to safety brackets at all.

 You do not make towage of emergency vehicles a backing.

Do not forget to turn a key in the lock of ignition of the towed car in position of ON, otherwise inevitably there will be a blocking of a steering column. Besides, at the included ignition also indexes of turns and stoplights are activated.
Remember that at the switched-off engine efficiency of braking of the car considerably decreases because the vacuum amplifier of brakes ceases to function. At the same time it is necessary to squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake with a little big, than usually by effort. On the models equipped with the power steering when performing maneuvering the bigger effort should be put also to a steering wheel.

The driver of the towed vehicle has to try to hold constantly a towing sling in the tense situation in order to avoid breakthroughs and accidents of running-down him wheels.

Before a start of motion drivers of both vehicles (towing and towed) should coordinate among themselves a route.

The movement has to be carried out only with moderate speeds, along the shortest route and observance of traffic regulations. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and maneuvering.
